Why the spikes on stars if this was taken with an AP 155?

5" for the price of a 6"

Posted By Victor Hall

The AP is optimized for imaging,more portable,and would require a less robust mount setup.Plus it's an AP!

Polaris Mount-vs-Super Polaris

Posted By Victor Hall

As the name implies,the Polaris is a lighter duty version of the Super Polaris.I believe the SP is rated for 15lbs.The Polaris is probably about 10lbs.

Tom's a regular on the Yahoo group.I'd just ask there or e-mail him direct.He seems like a friendly guy and a smart business man.I'd bet he would have no problem with you stopping by especially if it means a sale!I believe He lives in Cleveland.

Posted By Victor Hall

Add a same spec 14.5" f4.3 Pegasus(very good mirror)for $1450 and you get a great scope over $2800 off Starmasters' price.I priced the Starmaster with these options at $8260.
